Sunday Afternoons for Kids: What Happens When a Dog Faces Downward

Sunday Afternoons for Kids: What Happens When a Dog Faces Downward

Recommended for ages 8–13

Maybe our Downward Dog crosses a bridge and climbs a mountain to meet the Crow. Or the Lion. Or the Lord of the Fishes. Or maybe not. In this workshop, students will tell us what happens after they use yoga poses (traditional and invented) to discover characters within and to explore how good stories flow. Joan Hawley McClain is a long time certified yoga teacher who loves to make silly faces and noises.

This workshop is outdoors, on the Lindbrook Terrace. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one.
